London In Bloom Awards – Covid 2020 version – And again CCG has done very well


Although there was not a formal garden visit jugement this year,  written submissions were entered at the request of the judges.  Submissions were made for both the station garden and the orchard.  Thanks Pat and Jane for doing this on our behalf.


What follows is information from the judges – and a copy of a small section of the results.

“Please find attached the results for this year’s desk-top judging and thank you all for entering in this most difficult of years.


The Trustees have decided as there was considerable variation in the type of submission it was  not possible to be able to arrive at an overall winner in each category.


And as the RHS did not run the In Your Neighbourhood category this year  we held our own in both London & South & South East in Bloom with the title  Community Gardening Award.
